I got it working! When I roll MCR 1.4, it will be based on this, the ROM from the U8230 on Bouygues in France! :D

Improvements...

- NO PINK! No branding at all!
- new ROM core
- new TouchPal version
- very slim and fast
- updated roadsync and documentstogo

Pics below! :(

P

Edit: now with ROM download!

Download superceded - details in this topic

Wow thats great news, thats what everyone has been after!

Not sure if its just me but the links to the screens dont seem to be working, they fail to load for me (could be my corporate webfilter though).

Just realised it's the stock launcher, not the Pulse specific one!

Thats great news! I would vote for a very sleek, minimalistic custom ROM, where users can decide what apps to install and what not, just the bare necessary ones are included in the ROM. i don't need roadsync or the stupid block breaker, would be glad to see them gone.

I'm uploading something for you all to play with now! Basically I...

- downloaded the update from huaweidevice
- extracted the update
- hexedit the update file to extract the boot image and system partition
- unpacked the system partition and repacked it into zip format
- booted it and it didn't work
- replaced the boot image with the MCR one (until I have time to find the problem)
- booted and it did work
- made it into an update zip for you guys to check out
- uploaded it (in progress)

:D

This is stock, unrooted, use at your own risk etc. etc., posted only to let you guys have a look!


When its unrooted, i can still get back to recovery rom via bootloader and flash back my nandroid backup?
If yes, ill give it a try this evening.

Yeah, you can just put it in bootloader (vol down and end then power) then fastboot the recovery image to restore your nandroid backup. I did exactly this. :D
